Excellent read, thanks for posting. And I think the point crosses most all sports. We coddle to youth so much that they have these attitude that they are entitled to so much. And its beyond sports sadly.

 

Shoot look no further than the comments made by the college football player who went #1. Pretty much said he's the greatest thing since sliced bread and Cleveland had to draft him and pay him mega millions or he'd crush their QB everytime his team played them.  So the Browns drafted him #1. Hes going to sign a mega million dollar contract and has yet to play a freaking down of pro football.

 

Johnny Football comes to mind. Huge ego. Huge potential. Huge money. Pissed it all away.
